Ten & Thirty-Hour Courses Set for November

WNC Fallon Provides Required OSHA Safety Training

Construction employers are now able to stay local and get valuable safety training for new employees and supervisors, as well as comply with a state law going into effect January 1. Western Nevada College Fallon, in partnership with the Occupational Safety and Training Institute, will conduct 10-hour and 30-hour classes in construction safety for employees within the industry.

WNC's 10-hour course for new hires will be Monday, Nov. 9, and its 30-hour training for supervisors on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, Nov. 9, 10, 12 and 13. Both classes will meet 7:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. at the Fallon campus, 160 Campus Way. Cost per student for the 10-hour session is $150, and $325 for the 30-hour class.

To reduce workplace injuries, the 2009 Nevada Legislature enacted a law requiring construction workers to complete an Occupational Safety and Health Administration 10-hour safety course and supervisors to complete a 30-hour OSHA training course no later than 15 days after being hired.

The 10-hour training is intended to provide entry-level construction workers with general awareness to recognize and prevent hazards on a construction site. It also covers a variety of construction safety and health hazards they may encounter.

The 30-hour training is intended for employees such as supervisors who have a certain degree of safety responsibility.
Instructing is Ron Schaefer, who has more than a decade of experience as a manager and in-service trainer in chemical processing, manufacturing and distribution, and four years as a master safety trainer for safety standards and programs.
